Fence Repair Services

Between Waco's summer sun, windy winters, and the subtropical rains we get in Texas, your fence gets a year-round beating from Mother Nature. (That's why you want a fence built by a company that guarantees new fences and gates for ten years: yep, that was one slick segue 😎) A stained fence is much better protected from moisture, insects, fungi, and your mother-in-law, but only up to a point.

It's sometimes smarter (and nearly always cheaper) to fix your fence. If your posts and rails are still in good shape, and the only issue is warped or rotten pickets, we can just swap those out. And if you can just fix your fence instead of replacing it, add these extra dollars to your emergency fund: you can go to Vegas another time.

Repairing vs. Replacing

If possible, we all prefer to repair our fence rather than replacing it. When the repair is small, that makes sense. If the repair is too extensive or if the repair job requires to be re-done regularly, a replacement might be more cost-effective. We'll always quote any paid work before we do it - no surprise charges on your invoice. We'll go over all options: no hard sell tactics here at Action Fence of Waco!

Here's a picture we snapped during a morning walk. That neighbor had his old fence repaired by replacing a few pickets. Just know that with a stained fence, his new pickets would have blended-in better: (Even an old fence can be stained.) Fence repaired by replacing a few pickets

Do-It-Yourself "Repairs"

A few doors down that same street, another neighbor has creatively "repaired" knotholes in his fence. Surprisingly, the HOA has not complained about his fence repair skills. Good for him, these googly eyes make his fence more memorable. Creative fence knotholes "repair"

While this makes for a fun anecdote during long winter nights, remember that your home is your largest asset. When a potential home buyer looks at your house, your fence is the first thing they see. Rely on pros like us for your fence repair needs!

Re-staining your fence

If the stain on your fence is fading, we can just re-stain the faded portions. If your original fence contractor was looking out for you the way we do, he used a high-quality, oil-based stain - not a cheap water-based stain that only looks good for 30 minutes. If your fence was stained with an oil-based stain, no need to pressure-wash it beforehand. We can just apply a fresh coat of stain on top of the original.

And if your fence still in good shape but unstained, it may be worth staining it to increase its lifespan. It doesn't matter if your fence was never stained before.

Look at this beauty: the contrast between the stained boards and the galvanized steel posts gives off a truly high-end vibe. Best of all, steel posts are super durable: Stained cedar fence with galvanized square posts

Gate repairs

Wooden gates are harder to repair than replacing a few pickets, but we'll be happy to have a look and give you two estimates: one to repair the gate, and one to replace it. There's not always a right answer, so we'll go over the pros and cons with you. No sales pitch from us, we just give you the facts: we report estimate, you decide.

Besides just being a functional entrance, a gate is also an accent that breaks the monotony of a fence. And black-painted hardware is just chic on another level: Horizontal board stair stepped cedar fence

Replacing a kickboard

A smart way to extend your fence's life is to place a kickboard (or "rot board") at the bottom, parallel to the ground. That allows us to raise your pickets away from the ground. Between moisture and insects, the ground is your fence's biggest enemy. When the kickboard is rotten or otherwise damaged, we just swap it out for a new one. Kickboards last a long time because they're made of treated pine.

Replacing a post

Sometimes, replacing a post is enough to fix a leaning fence and prevent it from falling under high winds. Since soil is a fence post's biggest enemy, we set our posts in two-feet deep concrete to help protect them from moisture, insects, and fungi. (Two feet is well below the frost line around Waco, which is 10-12 inches.)

Here's a cedar-picket fence we built using treated-pine railing and metal posts. Metal posts look less "organic," but they're the most secure way to anchor a fence: Cedar-picket fence with metal posts
